Networking Breakfast - Friday 8th May

It was our pleasure to work with Our Friends Electric and Select AV, who put together this event for their client.

A relaxed, casual and rustic feel was the brief and they achieved this by way of a barista coffee machine, groovy coloured chairs, bare lightbulbs and wooden materials for staging and benches.  Thank you to Mia Garlick and Minister Bruce Bilson for attending today.  Thanks also to Thomas Barnes, Aspect Media for video and photography.

"We attended the Facebook breakfast which was catered for by Black Tie Catering and the food was fabulous, thank you"

A relaxed, no stress day

Lemon Meringue Bites

Chantal and the crew did an absolutely wonderful job.  Everyone provided feedback on how wonderful the food and service was. The lemon meringue bites were a notable mention.  

We had hoped for a really relaxed, no stress day.  What we ended up with was a really relaxed, gorgeously sunny, perfect day to kick back and relax in the back yard eating and drinking. With not a care in the world and some terrific company to share it with.  It was so much better than we had planned for

Corporate and Private Catering with Black Tie for 15+ years!

We have been using Black Tie Catering for 15+ years now, both in a corporate and private setting.  I think when you’ve used the same company for 15+ years, the quality of service speaks for itself!  We have on occasion in the past tried other companies to see what else was out there and possibly find some new and fresh ideas, but never got past the first date and always came back to Black Tie.

Maureen & Tony are obviously well travelled and often experience the services of other catering companies around the globe, but their feedback is that Black Tie still offers a superior standard of quality and service. The menu is always new, fresh and a gastronomic delight which translates from menu to plate.  David and Nicola are exceptionally professional in the pre and post event organisation and follow up, as are the chefs and service staff on the night.  From the moment we send an email with dates of our next function to the minute the staff finish the clean-up, everything is seamless which makes our lives easy.  I would highly recommend David and his staff at Black Tie for any corporate or private function or event you may be planning.

40th Birthday Celebration: impressed with not only the food, but the professionalism

After a 40th birthday celebration held in Fitzroy North in early February 2015, we received the following lovely feedback:

"I was really impressed with not only the food but also the professionalism of both the chef and waitress.  They were very pleasant and accommodating even when the party was moved inside due to poor weather and they were forced to perform the same role in cramped quarters.  The food was delicious and served hot, and was well received by all the guests.  I'd certainly use them again in the future and recommend them to friends"
